Welcome to the UNE Outdoor Adventure Club!
Although no one here can remember back that far, historical documents indicate the club was formed way back in 1960. In those days we were known as the UNE Mountaineering Club, but we’ve since changed our name to the UNE Outdoor Adventure Club (UNEOAC) as we’ve expanded our club activities.
Club activities have ranged from hang gliding to mountain biking, orienteering, ski-touring (now a separate club), bushwalking, hiking, camping, climbing, caving, canoeing, kayaking and canyoning. Current club interests are focused on bushwalking, climbing, caving, kayaking, and camping. But other events can be arranged with enough interest!
With rugged gorge country and the extensive National Parks surrounding the New England Tablelands right on our doorstep, our club has the ideal playground. Details of club trips, events, and activities are posted on our Facebook page. While Club Members can access our private Facebook group to connect with each other, share suggestions and advice, and discuss club plans.
How do I join the club?
People of any experience level are welcome and encouraged to join in on club activities. If you want to participate in the UNEOAC events and activities, go to the UNE Life Club page to become a UNEOAC member.
The climbing wall is also available to SportUNE members and the general public on public climbing nights.
